Description

Wearing jewelry is essential to helping women developed their own style. For women wishing to create a look that's unique, the last thing they'll want to invest money in is mass produced pieces of jewelry. It's for this reason alone, learning the skills needed for making silver jewelry could prove extremely beneficial. When it comes to making such pieces you need to know where to purchase the right kinds of supplies. In this book not only do we discuss what's needed to start your own silver jewelry making venture but also provide several projects you may want to try out. We also recommend you attend a silver jewelry-making course if you can as well. If you're having problems finding courses we highly recommend you look online for what you need. You may even find an online course that enables you to learn in the comfort of your own home. As a beginner, the kind of course you should be looking for is one, which covers the basics. The kinds of skills this course should be teaching you relate to soldering cutting, shaping and texturing the silver plus polishing it. Also look for courses that teach you skills such as making jump rings, hooks and clasps for earrings. Finally what you should be looking for in a course is one that'll allow you to make a number of different pieces of jewelry from silver. The actual process of turning a piece of silver into a piece of jewelry is not only very technical, but also allows your artistic side to flourish. Once you've finished making silver jewelry either for yourself or for someone else, can prove extremely satisfying, especially as you watch the piece develop and grow

Introduction

Wearing jewelry is essential to helping women developed their own style. For women wishing to create a look that’s unique, the last thing they’ll want to invest money in is mass produced pieces of jewelry. It’s for this reason alone, learning the skills needed for making silver jewelry could prove extremely beneficial.

When it comes to making such pieces you need to know where to purchase the right kinds of supplies. In this book not only do we discuss what’s needed to start your own silver jewelry making venture but also provide several projects you may want to try out.

We also recommend you attend a silver jewelry-making course if you can as well. If you’re having problems finding courses we highly recommend you look online for what you need. You may even find an online course that enables you to learn in the comfort of your own home.

As a beginner, the kind of course you should be looking for is one, which covers the basics. The kinds of skills this course should be teaching you relate to soldering cutting, shaping and texturing the silver plus polishing it. Also look for courses that teach you skills such as making jump rings, hooks and clasps for earrings.

Finally what you should be looking for in a course is one that’ll allow you to make a number of different pieces of jewelry from silver.

The actual process of turning a piece of silver into a piece of jewelry is not only very technical, but also allows your artistic side to flourish. Once you’ve finished making silver jewelry either for yourself or for someone else, can prove extremely satisfying, especially as you watch the piece develop and grow.

Chapter 1 – Tools You’ll Need for Making Silver Jewelry

As you’ll soon discover there are certain specialist tools needed for making jewelry from silver you wouldn’t need for making other items of jewelry. Not only do we take a look at these but also the other general tools required for making not only silver jewelry but general items of jewelry as well.

Tool 1 – Pliers

There are several different types of pliers needed to make silver jewelry.

Flat Nose or Chain Nose Pliers

These are pliers you need for holding pieces with as well as for bending and forming the silver into a variety of different shapes and styles.

Round Nose Pliers

Without these pliers you will find it very difficult to create curves or circles. Plus like the flat nose pliers these can be used for bending wire.

Half Round Pliers

These pliers also help you to bend silver, but do so without them causing an outside curve to be created.

Serrated Edge Pliers

These pliers wouldn’t normally be used when for actually making the piece of jewelry but used more for pulling wire through the jewelry or to straighten it out. But you need to be careful when using these as they can leave marks on the silver.

    This is a complete waste of time. I wouldn't have given it even 1 star if that was possible. I am an intermediate level metalsmith. Unless you're able to follow written directions without pictures, diagrams or any visual indication of what you're making and what it is supposed to look like this book is completely useless and disappointing. I'm sure it has more to do with the transition to digital format than with how the original was presented.
